To think it's dreadful that women in the Honours list who didn't take their DH name still have that listed as well as the name they use

Honours list

Eg page 9 Dr Hilary Mary MANTEL, CBE
Mrs McEwen

with thanks to TalkinPeace on the thread about changing your name to your husbands name

Does anyone know if this is what is done as standard?
Is there a choice?

Oops sorry just seen Talkin's started a thread about this already www.mumsnet.com/Talk/am_i_being_unreasonable/2107131-to-be-sick-of-Institutional-sexism-in-the-UK-Honours-List

I will go over there.

Does she use her married name in a legal sense though? Like on the electoral role and council tax bill?

If she does and Mantel is just her professional name then it is correct that her legal name should be on there.
